Description

Du Barry: Woman of Passion

1930 Lobby Card

Du Barry, Woman of Passion, the 1930 Sam Taylor romantic French Revolution historical melodrama (about a very ambitious young lady who starts as a casino hostess, but manages to become the mistress to the king, all the while maintaining a relationship with her true love, and she remains with him throughout her life) starring Norma Talmadge (in the title role as Madame Du Barry), William Farnum (as Louis XVI), Conrad Nagel, Allison Skipworth, and Hobart Bosworth. Note that this was Norma Talmadge's last movie, and her only talking movie, and the story goes that she had a MAJOR New York accent, and that this movie therefore ended her career (and this was parodied in "Singin' in the Rain"). Actually, that is a fairy tale, and it seems more likely that her career ended as a result of her very public affair with Gilbert Roland. Since her husband Joseph Schenk was one of the owners of the studio that employed her, United Artists, it seems quite reasonable that Schenk torpedoed her career, being a wronged husband!
